Cool How to add contects back to ur phone FAST with out using blue tooth or any thing.

if you guys are like me i had to hard reset my phone so many times bc of the 6800 up grade and then you had to degrade it back to the old version and every time you that you lose all the phone numbers on your 6800 right.well i figure some thing out bc i had to hard reset my phone so many times.bc before i had to type my phone book back in one by one or use blue tooth to send it one by one back to my phone.and some times i just lost some numbers because i dont have it writing down any where.

well here is a faster ways for you guys. if you guys dont have msn ( just go Down load it from windows or type in MSN in yahoo or something.and just down load it the version i have is the newest one WINDOW LIVE MSN. but you do need to have a hot mail account 1st so get one its just a free email account dont worry you dont ever have to use it just get it for this oky ) or if you guys do have msn you guys can do this.

when adding a new phone # add it in as WINDOW LIVE.

type in the info as u wish ( dont warry dont need to add the IM or email )

after that it will ask you do you want to add it to your WINDOWS LIVE account MESSENGER.

click yes on the bottum left hand corner.

then you will see a box that say connecting to the internet.

once you guys did all that logg on to your msn account on your phone and once you are log on log back off.

then logg on to msn on your desk top or lap top and you will see that you guys have all the names on your phone on your msn account.

so next time when you hard reset your phone and lose every thing you wont have to use blue tooth to send the phone #s over or type it one by one.

just log into msn on ur phone and it will ask you do you want to add the contacts to you phone from msn just click YES

and boom there you go all the phone #s back on your phone FAST..!!!!!!!!!



PS

no when you log off msn on your phone the phone #s will stay in your phone.

and no you dont have to log in msn and log off msn every time you add a new content. you guys can do it once you type in all your phone #s to your phone then log on msn on your phone.

if you guys have any question just email me i try to help ya out.

I think you can do the same thing using the ActiveSync using your computr, and not internet connection needed either.

you have to have outlook setup and a default profile that will store your contacts. then when you sync via active sync, you have the option to pull contacts, email, tasks, notes, files... etc back to the device.

retyping sure would be a PITA.

better question would be... why do you have to downgrade so many times? maybe you should look at the bug threads for whatever ROM you are trying to install.

yes i should had but when i did the up grade to it there was no bug thread..then and when there was one which it was to late i didnt change it but then i show all the problems like more drop calls the blue led light want working and b.t. was worst then before so i did the change. i also did other hard reset b4 the up grade bc of lots of apps that i added to it.some of them made its slower and some of them didnt even work.so lots of time on it and i just reseted it to start over and only put apps that i really need.

and thanks for the outlook set up i will also do that too..

or/and you can get a free mail2web live account, and activesync to that OTA.

Many many options out there. Pick three

Wow, what a long complicated way to do something super easy!

The best way I've found so far:

Step 1: copy the pim.vol file from the root of your device onto the storage card.

Step 2: flash your rom.

Step 3: copy it back. You are done.

That's it! And heck, doing it this way also backs up your calendar and tasks.

^ exchange server is the BEST method. Period.
It keeps not only your contacts updated, but also your emails, calendar, tasks, everything considered PIM!

After a hard reset, all u need to do is enter the server info into activesync on your ppc. Exchange server also allows push email... for those unfamiliar with the term, push is the "live" experience like blackberries have, where u get mail instantly.

Since Mail2web offers free basic exchange server hosting, I don't see why ANY of the aforementioned options even come close!
